Now for my really stupid question. I am confused on what type of bulb to get to replace the one that came with my hood.
It's a 48" Flour Perfecto hood. What type of bulb works in these, I see T-8, T-10 (which I think it came with), T-12? Don't understand these numbers.
Also, the hood only has one bulb in it. How am I suppossed to get 2 watts per gallon (90 gallons) for plants to work with this? I only got the 13" deep one, so I do have space behind it, I am wondering if I am suppossed to get just a twin-bulb strip then. Seems like a lot of lighting for 8-10 hours a day.
I am going to get some kh, gh, etc test kits...so I can cover the rest of the essentials. A UV Sterilizer is really looking like a good idea as well (I don't think it can hurt).
Thanks for all your help and the welcome, sorry to be a pest. If everything goes well for a week or 2, I can start looking at other species for the tank.
